Volunteer Opportunities at Soar Sound

Soar Sound, based in Leicester, is a community radio station that serves as a platform for local voices and content. The station operates with the support of volunteers, who play a key role in its day-to-day activities and its connection with the community. In addition to our on-air presentation roles, over the coming months we will be seeking volunteers to help grow our team-based approach for a range of roles that are essential to our operations and outreach efforts.

  • Event Management and Support: Our events provide a direct link to the community, featuring entertainment, opportunities for discussion and promoting civic engagement. Volunteers in this area will assist with the planning, setup, and execution of these events, requiring organisational skills and a willingness to engage with participants and attendees.
  • Volunteer Support: The well-being and coordination of our volunteers are paramount. We will need help assisting with the induction of new volunteers, helping to arrange training, and serving as a point of contact for volunteer inquiries. It is suited to individuals who are good communicators and enjoy working in a team environment.
  • Social Media Assistance: With the importance of online presence growing, our social media platforms are vital for engaging with our audience and sharing content. Volunteers with an interest in digital communication and content creation can help manage our social media profiles, contributing to our online community’s growth.
  • Website Development: An effective and informative website is crucial for our station. Volunteers with skills in web design and development are needed to ensure our website remains current, functional, and accessible to our audience.
  • Administration and Governance: The administrative backbone of Soar Sound requires meticulous attention to detail.
